#84 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2015!
"This has a delicate core of violet, plum and red berry flavors that are broad yet well-defined. Medium-grained tannins gain power midpalate, with mineral and shiso leaf notes on the taut finish. Drink now through 2020." - Wine Spectator, 91 point!
"Deep red color with violet tones. Lush, fresh and complex aroma dominated by ripe black fruits, blackberries, prunes and cassis, showing notes of violet and spices originating from "elevage" in the barrels. Full bodied, with well-balanced acidity, firm and ripe tannins. Elegant, long and persistent finish." - Winery

Duorum Wines started in January 2007 as an expression of wishes of João Portugal Ramos and José Maria Soares Franco to join their activities as professional winemakers in one wine production project from Douro region, with unique characteristics and an international dimension. Two winemakers who have made history in Portugal over the last few decades, in two regions that the world recognises as being of high quality and having strong personality, the Douro and Alentejo, meet again in this project thoughout the Douro, in the regions of the Cima Corgo and Hight Douro, two exceptional and protected terroirs. Thus, "Duorum" - a project "from two", envisaged and brought to life in the age-old vineyards of the Douro.
